Alberta schools to offer Arabic-language bilingual program in 2018

Alberta students, from kindergarten to Grade 12, will now have access to learning Arabic in school. The government is rolling out a province-wide bilingual Arabic curriculum in time for the 2018 school year. “There has been a great demand. You see, in Edmonton we have a number of schools that are teaching Arabic, but in small towns it’s not in existence,” said Dean Sanduga, director of the Canadian Arab Friendship Association.
